A sextet of African-American vets don black leather jackets, mount their roaring hogs and set off Westward down the long, dusty road in this biker movie that is among the first to feature all black leads. During their journey, they get entangled with the white biker gang who killed one of their brothers.

Audience Reviews for The Black Six

I dug this one a bit more than the film it was paired with on a DVD (The Black Gestapo) but only because it was a bit different in its setting, amidst a black biker gang, and had some humor in there to break up the monotony. Rental?

Worst blaxploitation movie? Worst one I've seen. Wonder if the finale inspired part of the Night Rider sequence in Django Unchained?

The Black Six is a strange revenge film starring six NFL players including "Mean" Joe Greene. While the plot is hammy, the fight choreography is terrible, the acting is laughable, and the film as a whole is completely ridiculous, it manages to be a fun film the whole way through due to its rather awful production values. It's basically a time capsule to the 70's, but it's a fun film if you like cheesy exploitation films. It's far from being the best blaxploitation film I've ever seen, but The Black Six works.
